January 16, 2017-I shook my head…”WHAT? A WHAT?”
Bernard didn’t answer and I took that as a bad sign. I turned toward the large human and saw that he was looking in his rearview mirror. He had obviously seen what we had because he was using four-letter-words at an increased, and louder frequency.
I looked behind us and the tall, thin human and her henchmen were gaining on us. Our stolen car weaved and accelerated into oncoming traffic and the tiny bit of strength I had left was barely enough to raise my paws to my eyes to cover them.
“HANG ON!” The large human said as he smashed the passenger side window with a hammer that was in the back seat. He turned his attention to his own window and opened it fully.
I released my paws from my eyes and grabbed onto Bernard for dear life! My eyes fluttered open for a split second only to see that we were in deep trouble and it was just ahead.
“What is he doing? WHAT IS HE DOING?” Bernard yelled as he shook me.
I turned my attention back to the front windshield and braced for impact. I knew exactly what was going to happen and it was about to go down in a split second.
The street we were on ended at a pier. Before I could tell Bernard that I loved him, the large human punched the gas and launched the car off of the end of the dock.
We hit the water with enormous force but I managed to hold my breath as we became fully submerged. My arms and legs flailed as I tried to find my way to the surface. The water was dark and murky and I wasn’t sure which way was up. I blinked a couple of times and found my way out of the flooded car window. I started to panic until I was finally pulled from the water.
